Favorite Lines: “Hope you got something worthwhile out of that bitch, that was an expensive favor I did her.” (p. 162)
Saint City Sinners is book four in the Dante Valentine series. In it Dante is called back to Saint City to help her necromance friend, Gabriele Spocarelli. Spocarelli’s in trouble and hiding some big secrets. Secrets that lead the way to death.
Dante is still the devil’s right hand with a duty to find the escaped demons and Japh is going to help her fulfill her commitment whether she wants to or not.
Despite Dante’s warnings, Japh searches for the demons as Dante hunts for revenge forcing the two to clash.
I really haven’t done this book justice in my description of it. If you read the series this is another can’t miss installation. If you haven’t read the previous books in the series, this isn’t the book for you. It is not a stand alone.
One thing that irritated me this time, is how Dante acts like Japh is abusive. He showed some backbone in book three by showing Dante that he wasn’t her whippin’ boy and now she’s all I won’t let you hurt me and he’s gonna hurt me. I don’t see Japh as abusive. Maybe it’s because of her background, I don’t know.
Out of all the books my favorite is book two. It’s an emotional rollarcoaster that had me bawling. I haven’t felt that connection to book three or four, but I’m holding out for it in book five which will be released in January 2008.
